Representation 30 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Anthony Pullon

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge
Representation: Protect Rowhedge from over development and the social impact this would have on our community. No erosion of the green gap between. Rowhedge and Colchester.

Original submission

Rowhedge is currently undergoing a large-scale housing development comprising around 300 housing units which will add around 800 new people in to our small community. The Battleswick development will add a further 300 and erode the green buffer between Rowhedge and Colchester. Our village status and way of life is being threatened by over development. Furthermore the local school cannot accommodate more pupils so kids will have to be bussed out of the village which will impact on traffic but more importantly on missing out on building school friendships with villagers. Rowhedge has had its fair share of additional housing and I appeal to the Borough Council to protect us from over development.
